Latest News: Paper accepted for Pattern Recognition
Welcome to the School of Computing Sciences. We were founded over 40 years ago and we pride ourselves on teaching and research that is relevant to the needs of now and the future. We believe that we learn by doing so we teach using a practical hands-on approach in combination with the latest theories.
In the 2014 National Student Survey, the School of Computing Sciences was ranked in the top ten in the UK for teaching. Our graduates are highly employable. The latest employment figures show that 88% of our undergraduates found work or study within six months of leaving, and of those, 95% were in graduate-level jobs.
Our research has won awards and prizes and is dominated by what the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) called “world leading” or “internationally excellent” output.
Our laboratory facilities are outstanding, offering:
- Six general computing labs
- A specialised computer graphics lab (with haptic feedback devices)
- An electronics hardware lab
- A superb new Apple Macintosh Lab, which contains iMacs, iPads and iPod touch devices for our undergraduate and postgraduate students.
